Wow, this is really a beautiful image. Dating to the late-1850s, this original ambrotype on ruby glass shows a pretty woman in an amazing dress and jewelry. She is holding a small book, perhaps a prayer book or diary, and wears a huge checkered ribbon in her hair.

The background is interesting, and not often seen, as ambrotypes typically have plain white studio backgrounds.

Sixth-plate (1/6) in a half-case. It measures about 3.75" x 3.25".

Shipping includes tracking and insurance.
